Cat Has Heart-Melting First Encounter With Owners' Newborn Baby

A sleek smokey British shorthair cat warmly welcomed its owners’ newborn baby during their first encounter at home in Aalter, Belgium.

Footage captured by Romy Depraetere shows cat Jules sniffing sleeping baby Olivia and appearing to kiss her on the head after closer inspection.

“Jules has been interested in Olivia since the beginning, when he hears her crying or making noises, he often tries to crawl into her crib,” Depraetere told Storyful.

“They will be great friends for sure,” she said.

Depraetere also shared that her daughter Olivia was born on Jules’ first birthday. Credit: Romy Depraetere via Storyful
